I play as the King of Ireland, and I plan to expand a little in the Kingdom they call England. Problem is, they have high crown authority, meaning any landed titles can not be inherited outside their realm. If I gain a dukal title, this will not be inherited to my heir upon my death. So how do I go about this?
I have a few ideas:
- Play like a baws and challenge the crown directly. This will be hard, because I need to control at least half the country, and it might be hard to conjure up that many CBs before I die. Even then, can I lower the crown authority when it's not my main title?
- Give away all my English lands to a dynasty member (preferably my heir) before I die. In theory, this would give me more time to build up an English powerbase.
- Ignore England for now, and focus on Scotland and Wales. When those are secured, I could possibly start pushing for an Emperor title.
- Have the English king excommunicated, which may give me a free CB (right?) – however, this is highly unlikely in my situation.
My second problem is, even if I did manage to become King of England and change their crown authority, my sources inform me their succession law is actually seniority – so that would need to be changed as well, and as far as I know, you can't change two crown laws in one reign.
Seriously, those bastards make it hard for me to invade their lands. It's almost as if they don't want me there.
